Monday Devotional August 29th



In fact, no one can enter a strong man's house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man. Then he can rob his house.

Matthew 3:27

Take back what the enemy has stolen from you.  satan and his demon angels are a strong force.  However they are not strong that God.  God is more poweful than satan.  He proved this by what Christ has done on the cross.  For some of us the strong man has our peace, joy, happiness, health, love, finances etc.  But the bible teaches us that we have to tie him up and then we can then take back what belongs to us (emphises mine).   We must have this mind set when we are dealing witht the devil and his demon angels.  they are good at what they do and they have been around for ages and they know exactally what to wait for you to do to enter to rob you.

I know there were so many times I tired to enter the strong mans house without binding him up first and only to get eaten alive.  But once I learned to tie up the strong man I come out victorious everytime!  oh Glory to God!  I hope this scripture helps you for your need today.  Whatever your need to today, whatever your struggle, whatever temptations, trials, temptations tie him up, bind up satan and you will be victorious.

Saturday Cup or Tea!

Shout Out To God



For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  John 3:16

This scripture has always been a scripture that keep me rooted and grounded.  If you never knew or don't know how much your father loves you he tell you how much in John 3:16.  How many of you would give up your only Son or Daughter?  I know to give us someone that belongs to you and give them to the world is something that puts a sting in my heart.  When my children grow up to be adults I have to let them go and let them find their own way.  they will have to make their own mistakes and learn from them.  I am going to have to let them fall in love and maybe get a broken heart or two.  That is hard to think of.  I could only image someone loving me enough to give us a piece of them for me.  He thought so much of me to give me someone that was apart of him.  That was with him when he was creating the world, when he made humans, and when he wanted to save the world.  Who do you love so much that you will give up one of your children for them?  I thank God for giving me his very best and I thank Jesus for saving me from myself because he did not have to go through with it but he did because he was not selfish and said not my will but your will be done.  We always give shout outs to people all over the world for different reasons.  I remember when I was  a teen on the radio I would call in the station and give a shout out to friends or dedicate a song to my boyfriend now my husband.  But have you ever thought of giving God and his son a shout out.  Have a great Saturday and I hope your Sunday is full of expectancy.

God Bless

Monday Devotional 8/15




May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us--yes, establish the work of our hands.  Psalm 90:17

Whenever we are on a new business adventure or working really hard at work on a job or even at home we should really ask God for his favor.  When we are doing work for man we do not always get the favor we may deserve or necessarily get the promotion or advancement we are looking for when we want it.  With our heavenly father we can ask him to establish us.  Set us for where whoever we are working for has no choice but to give us what we deserve!   Don't sit back and think just your work alone will ever be good enough because although it may be with man you can't get the blessings how God gives.  He blessings are always better and he is the one that makes them sure.  The bible says that a man plans his ways but it is the Lord who makes them sure. Proverbs 16:9.  Know who you has your back and that is on your side.  Being at work right now I know that a lot is expected of me and I know I do a lot but I know that ultimately my blessings ( the ones that will last) Comes from my heavenly father and therefore I don't freak out as much when I have loads of work to do.  Yes I say man there is so much to do but I do not get frazzled when I know my what I get from them is dependent upon my performance.   When we work as though working for the Lord we can sure that we will receive whatever blessings he has for us not thinking of just man but him.

I can just image all the people in the world that have kept there job when things got rough simply by working as though they were working for God himself.  I know some jobs I have had if I worked as though I was only working for man I would have probably been fired a few times or lost my cool a lot.  But when you see it as working for him...asking him to establish the work of your hands, he will do it and great blessings are in that.

God Bless
